    i would like to buy a DHT500SD but have been told that the volume will not be enough to fill the room i will be using. The room is the size and shape of a single car garage. How is the volume on this sound system? does anyone think it is enough? and if not, are there any systems on the market that are? thanks alot for any replies.

    I have the 500SD and my living room is a little bigger than yours and the system is more than capable. My volume settingis usually around the 25-35 level. (think it goes to 60 something).

    I've also got an extra Denon rear speaker and an active sub so now have a 6.1 setup! although the volume was adequate before this aswell.

    25-35 :eek:

    I usually have to turn it upto 55+ to hear talking :confused: and my room ain't that big (I wonder if years of clubbing has damaged my ears beyond repair!)

    Or increase the db's to plus 10 on each speaker.

    Should fill your garage just fine :)

    55 seems a bit loud! if i put mine on 55 then the neighbours would get me arrested! my living room is 25ftx13ft and 25-35 is fine. my speaker volumes are between 6 and 10 and i normally have it on DTS cinema which seems a bit louder than pro logic II i think.
